Last friday I went on a tripple dinner date to Kaks Kokka, which is situated in Rotermanni. The restaurant opened its doors maybe a year ago, but it was my first time there.
The interior is very scandi clean and minimalistic, yet contemporary and cosy. The restaurant is a more relaxed version of Ö, which is a more fine dining place with the same owner (and actually next door).
The service was nice, the food was good, big portions and not that expensive. Appertizers (which were huge) cost from 5-11€ and main courses cost from 9-16€. The wine selection was quite narrow, but very drinkable.
Prawn (marinated in mango) salad. This would be nice for lunch, quite big as an appertizer.
Elk tartar with tomato chutney and smoked egg yolk. Such a visually pleasing dish!
Home made cottage cheese salad. I don’t know why but I started craving herring with this dish?! Weird.
Mussels in a delicious tomato and herb broth.
Atlantic cod, potatoes, fennel and beurre blanc.
Lamb with artichoke mash, oven roasted beets and port wine sauce.
All in all, I liked Kaks Kokka and I will definitely visit again. It is a nice place to go on a date, take your parents out to dinner or to grab lunch.
